Unusual SOny UX for sale on ebay with 3x proper USB ports.

For someone looking for a UX with a difference, I found this on ebay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-VAIO-VGN-UX1XN-Umbau-DVB-T-GPS-3-x-USB-Outdoor-Mini-Tablet-PC-500g-/322119348772?hash=item4affcf3224:g:tjIAAOSwP~tW3epT

It looks like the seller modded out the finger print sensor which is hard wired to USB, and connected a USB socket. Further to that there seems to be an additional USB slot next to the memory stick pro duo slot! In total you would get 3 working USB ports all possibly working in separate BUS, meaning you would get full USB 2.0 speed on each USB port.

The mod makes the UX seems a bit Frankenstein, as if I was to forego the finger print sensor, I would try to leave the hardware there to keep the front face looking good. and also apply the USB wiring internally rather than outside the main housing, but who knows, maybe there is just not enough space to do so.
